The Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA), in partnership with the City of Ocala, is excited to unveil the the lineup for the 2018 Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series. The series is sponsored in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national funder of creative placemaking that empowers communities to inject new life into underused public spaces. Through free, outdoor concerts, the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series will present ten free, family-friendly concerts to the public this summer.
The Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series will take place at Webb Field at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Complex located at 1510 NW Fourth St. Concerts will take place every Friday, June 15 through Aug. 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. The public is invited to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the concerts, which will have an open lawn setting. Gates open at 6 p.m. and admission is free.
This event will feature craft and non-profit booths, food trucks, novelty food vendors, in addition to beer and wine, which will be available for purchase. The Summer Break Spot will provide free dinners for those ages 18 and under. Each concert will also spotlight a local non-profit organization, who will conduct a special activity during the event’s intermission.
“This free concert series is a great opportunity for everyone to gather on the big green lawn at Webb Field,” said Jaye Baillie, Executive Director, Marion Cultural Alliance. “During last year’s series, we saw young and old dancing, swaying and singing side by side.”
The 2018 Levitt AMP Music Series is sponsored by 98.5 KTK, the David and Lisa Midgett Foundation, Mojo’s Grill and Catering, Kona Ice Ocala, Tri-Eagle Sales, Island Grove Winery and Oniram Productions.

About the Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series:
In January 2018, Ocala was named one of 15 small to mid-sized towns and cities across America to win a Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award of $25K in matching funds to present a free concert series at Webb Field in 2018. MCA, in partnership with the City of Ocala, submitted the Levitt AMP proposal and is presenting the concert series. In an effort to inspire and engage communities across the country around the power of creative placemaking, the Levitt Foundation invited the public to choose the top 25 finalists through online voting.
